I have a book manuscript (suspense / thriller) that was already purchased and professionally published in the UK. I have retained USA rights. I need a professional copy-editor to proof the manuscript before USA publication. This job includes changing British to American spelling (no more local colour, please), changing single to double quotes and vice-versa, etc.

In addition, the manuscript draft I possess still retains a small number of typos, distributed randomly, to keep you on your toes. The manuscript is approximately 100,000 words. If you like suspense books, you probably won't consider this combat duty.

Need fast turnaround, though.
